Serial Burglar Targeting Daphne Business Owners

Serial Burglar Targeting Daphne Business Owners

Posted: Updated:
DAPHNE, Alabama -

Police in Daphne are investigating at least 16 burglaries at local businesses. Investigators believe the same man is responsible for all the crimes.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video at a Daphne daycare. In the video, the crook pushes a child's walker out of the way, crawls across the floor, rifles through cabinets, then steals cash and food.

Daphne United Methodist Church was also on the burglar's hit list.

"We go out of our way to help people, it'd been much easier for them to come in and ask," says Dr. Bob McKibben with DUMC. "We're saddened that someone had to stoop to crime to receive benefit from the church."

The owner of the Sugar Kettle Cafe is also a victim.

"We thought he was a thug," says Michelle Young. "It takes a pretty bold person, the police department is two blocks away."
